Today’s Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition set to get the Brick Fanatics micro treatment is Slave I, the ship belonging to the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy
This year marks 20 years since LEGO Star Wars first combined the brick with the Force, with the theme becoming one of the LEGO Group’s greatest success stories. To commemorate the occasion, five sets have been released with exclusive minifigures in special retro boxes. Each day this week, Brick Fanatics will provide instructions to build a micro version of one of the new 20th Anniversary Edition sets.
First seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Slave I is one of the most popular and iconic ships from the Star Wars universe – it is certainly one of my all-time favourites. LEGO fans were able to own the original version of the ship, 7144 Slave I, way back in 2000. It has since seen 10 different iterations, including an Ultimate Collector Series set, several micro builds and multiple poly bags.
I absolutely love the shaping of the design and tried to recreate that as best I can in micro form, while keeping faithful to Boba Fett’s colour scheme.
A few modifications to the colour palette will give fans of the Clone Wars era a perfect recreation of Jango Fett’s Slave I, too.
Come back each day this week for a new LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition micro build.
